Looks like he’s starting his new job in September


#747

Well The Sun and The Mirror haven’t reported it so it’s definitely not happening.


#748

What’s moley saying about Gazzers @Arsenal4thetreble


#749

Quiet as a mouse.


#750

I like what he said regarding Ozil - props for that.


#751

What did he say?


#752

I think there is the video in the Ozil thread.

That’s how American ownership groups work. Keep going until you find something that works or just keep rowing until you can poach the guy you want ala the Chicago Cubs with Joe Madden.


#755

Go Cubs Go!!!


#756

It’s not just how American ownership groups work.

Liverpool also just got ‘lucky’ that Klopp wanted the job tbh. I’m sure he could have ended up Bayern or any other English rich club. Don’t see the fit of Klopp in Spain or Italy.

Growlers should not have a beard. Still I’ve done many a hairy one in my time so who am I to judge.

This is fucking weird and also quite difficult to get in any way worried about. It’s not like Gazidis has overseen some kind of footballing dynasty in his time at the club. He’s done alright for what his role is supposed to be and he may well leave a good legacy in terms of the management team he’s assembled but I’m not going to lose any sleep if he leaves.

I wonder if his departure says something about the way this transition from Wenger has gone in his eyes. I think he foresaw himself as the unchallenged supreme leader at Arsenal with Arsene out of the way, and we know he campaigned hard for Arteta as his man to be head coach. I wonder if he found he wasn’t in a position to lead in the way he’d wanted.
